Chayah Eishet Chayil presents FALL Scripture Study "Influential Women of The Torah" - This presentation is about Jochebed/Yoheved.

 According to the Torah, Jochebed (/ˈjɒkɪbɛd/; Hebrew: יוֹכֶבֶד‎ / יוֹכָבֶד‎, Modern Yoḫéved / Yoḫáved Tiberian Yôḵéḇeḏ / Yôḵāḇeḏ ; "Yahweh is glory") was a daughter of Levi and mother of Aaron, Miriam and Moses. She was the wife of Amram, as well as his aunt.

A man went from the house of Levi and he took a daughter of Levi. 2 The woman conceived and gave birth to a son. She saw that he was good and she hid him for three months. 3 She could not hid him any longer, so she took for him a wicker basket and smeared it with clay and pitch; she placed the boy into it and placed it among the reeds at the bank of the River. 4 His sister stationed herself at a distance to know what would be done with him. Exodus 2.1-4

Amram and Jochebed, the parents of Miriam and Aaron, separated rather than bring into the world boys who would be murdered under Pharaoh’s decree. Six-year-old Miriam argued that they were worse than Pharaoh, for their “decree” prevented the birth of even girls.

Here are some things to ponder:

  • her alterative choices.
  • What if she kept the baby?
  • eventually the authorities would come?
  • What would she do if he was snatched out of her arms taken to certain death?
  • Or wise to distance herself from this baby and let someone else throw him in the Nile? After all she had a husband and two other children to consider and take care of.
  • What to do?
  • All her choices were difficult. 

Have you ever been there? No matter which decision you made, they all seemed risky?
